Leave a Comment

This mod allows you to continue using Google Now as you're used to, but without having to compromise with your own language of choice - Whether it be Spanish, French, Swedish or any other language that is supported as of Jelly Bean(4.1 and above).This modification is done by Sletmo.
Root is required for this. To install the modified version of Google Now, all you have to do is replace the existing system app (either Velvet.apk or GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk) with the modified version.

Installation Instructions:
1. Download the file from below link. 
2. Remount /system with read/write permissions
3. Copy the apk to /system/app/Velvet.apk
IMPORTANT - If Velvet.apk does not already exist in /system/app/ it could be having another name. If GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk is there, replace that file instead.
4. Remount /system with read-only permissions again
5. Install the apk as you would the normal way

Samsung Cheats Again with Note 3 Benchmarks

Leave a Comment
Earlier this year, Samsung  was caught boosting benchmark results of  Galaxy S4 ,as reported by AnandTech . Now Samsung has been caught cheating on benchmark tests once again and this time with the Galaxy Note 3.

Galaxy Note 3 showed a 20% increase in scores for GeekBench 3, but when it came to Linpack test the result was as much as 50% higher.Samsung Galaxy S4 scores too were disputed by reviewers. Antutu, GeekBench, Linpack, Benchmark Pi etc  give scores based on various parameters, such as web browsing, graphics rendition, data read/write rate etc.

"We noticed an odd thing while testing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3: it scores really, really well in benchmark tests—puzzlingly well, in fact,We also found a way to disable this special CPU mode, so for the first time we can see just how much Samsung’s benchmark optimizations affect benchmark scores” Ron Amadeo reports for Ars Technica.

It seems Samsung is trying to polish the octa-core Galaxy S4 reputation.
